Gulf Shores City Officials Work to Improve Beach Safety

Gulf Shore beaches - beautiful and saferNext time you visit the amazing beaches of Gulf Shores keep in mind that our hard working city officials are moving ahead with plans to make the coastline of Gulf Shores a better and safer destination. This will be accomplished by adding lifeguards and increase the area that they now patrol.

At one point, city officials had stated there may be plans developed to regulate the use of personal watercraft and put limitations on where tents and chairs can be set up.  The impetus for the ban was a run away jet ski that landed on the beach in summer, 2009.  The city has argued that a ban was necessary for safety reasons but businesses fear the impact on tourism if such a law were enacted.

According to a report by the Press-Register, Mayor Robert Craft has stated that the city has decided not to ban personal watercraft rental and approved an extension of business licenses for the companies that lease them through January while discussion continues.

Critics believe that some restrictions on watercraft is likely. These improvements will be implemented to guarantee the safety along the highly populated and congested coastal areas
